Slow Cooker Sausage and Peppers

This post brought to you by Carando®. The content and opinions expressed below are that of The Cookin’ Chicks.

A few weeks ago, one of my friends made sausage and pepper sandwiches for dinner and a few neighbors, my family included, went over. My hubby ranted and raved how yummy it was, so I knew, I needed to make it for him again.

Since my slow cooker has become my best friend these days, I decided to make the sausage and peppers in the slow cooker to save on time! The end result was fabulous!

My go to sausage to use is Carando Meats!!
